It's under the Hive Tyrant bestiary entry in the PDF I have.

Also. Where does the tail go? You can see it going behind one leg, but it just...vanishes. Even if it curled back on itself, surely you'd still see some sign of it?

It's a real shame, since this bit of artwork nailed it for me, and it's been traded out for...fanart-tier rubbish.

You know, I dig the new Tyrant Guard models, but I really think they'd benefit from having some extra carapace plates glued onto the backs of their rending claws. The narrow little ridges there look a bit odd.

>Do orks fear death?

The Nightbringer legend says no. They were spared the Nightbringer's gift.

However, some smarter Orks recognize the concept of self preservation.

>Do they fear pain?

Nope, not in the same extent of the other races. They can endure a lot of pain before they break.

>If so, at what point does this fear overshadow the common Orky instinct to fight, and force them to leg it?

When their leaders are killed or their Warband are torn to shreds. Ork Warbosses makes sure that his boyz fear him more than the enemy. If the Warboss falls, the Orks will flee for their lives especially if they're facing a scary enemy.

>Another similar question: Do dark eldar raiders take orks as slaves?

Yes.

As pets, playthings, slaves, and arena fighters, they serve in the Dark City.

Hahahaha....no.

As you see here. The Orks learned to fear the Great Devourer.

You want Victories, Xenophiles? Look no further than Octarius. Almost from the start to now, it was the Nids brutally dominating the Orks and pushing them back world after world until they reached the Overfiend's throne world.

Now the Overfiend is forced to make his last stand as the Swarmlord is killing his Warbosses left and right. Two continents have already fallen on that world.

Yet despite all of this, we have no whining from the Ork lads. Interesting.

Thread reminder.

The Orks are losing in Octarius. The Tyranids of Leviathan are ascendant and the Orks are shrinking in the face of the endless swarms.

>Also the nids are slow traveling through space, the orks will have all the time in the world to grow and prepare.

The Orks in the Octrarius Empire had time to prepare and defend.

Guess what happened? They lost four times in a row. The Nids grinded them down.

>Plus the orks have mass numbers far far beyond the known galaxy that will be drawn to the conflict.

Twelve Galaxies worth of Nids > 1 Galaxy worth of Orks.

You can't win the number game.

>If you think the orks are scared of the nids or anyone as a whole

Without their Warbosses the Ork Boyz are weak willed and break easy in front of horrors like the Nids.

Where was this in the old fluff? I'm reading the 2E codex right now and can't find anything like that.

If Orks don't fear death, then why does Gorgutz always has an escape plan?

And do these Orks look happy at the notion of their lives coming to a brutal and messy closure?

I too love the Hormagaunts. I prefer an assault troop and Genestealers are too expensive for less effectiveness now.
As for my favorite I love the Hive Tyrant. In my mind an HQ should be a heavy hitting line breaker. Plus he can take so many options.

Four planets and all the Orks upon them were consumed. That's a heck of a head start.

All that's left is Octarius itself. The Orks are gonna make their last stand there against the well fed and experienced Ork killers of Leviathan.

Boss...the situation ain't looking so good.

>Orks don't NEED to accomplish anything. They've already won

Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka disagrees.

>Orks have won 40k.

They are fighting for survival like anyone else. They have won nothing. Look at current Ork/Nid war. The Orks are getting bloody slaughtered in there losing a planet after another.

Just because they enjoy fighting doesn't mean they enjoy getting beaten and losing. Look at these guys are they HAVING FUN?!

>>20287292
Bullshit and I am aware of the Ork strangling the Emperor thing.

I am very sure that Ork wasn't even a Warboss or that BIG!

Dude, that's the last fluff from Octavius. There is nothing saying the Orks are pushing back the Nids.

The Fluff says the Nids are thriving in the conflict while the Ork strength is fading away.

Also the Bloody Swarmlord is there to finish it. It's Gameover for the Orks GAMEOVER!

>At best it's a stalemate.

No!

THE ORKS ARE LOSING! THE NIDS ARE WINNING IN OCTAVIUS.

The Swarmlord was spawned in there too. The Orks are done for.

So much for the bestest fightest race in the galaxy HA!

C'tan fluff says that the Nightbringer carved the fear of death in all living things expect the Orks. So why are Orks not fearless?
